Statistics say there’s a good chance you do. According to the National Retail Federation, the most popular shopping day is Black Friday, when three in four Thanksgiving weekend shoppers plan to visit a store or retail website.
Why is Black Friday so popular? The short answer is because it’s the traditional kickoff day for the holiday shopping season. Historically, it’s also been the best day to find great deals. You don’t have to look any further than our Black Friday deal this year of 21% off custom button pins & fridge magnets (qtys. of 500 or less).

History of Black Friday
The earliest known use of “Black Friday” to refer to the day after Thanksgiving occurred in the journal, Factory Management and Maintenance, for November 1951, and again in 1952. Here it referred to the practice of workers calling in sick on the day after Thanksgiving, in order to have a four-day weekend.
Fixing the Holiday Shopping Calendar
When President Abraham Lincoln issued the proclamation establishing Thanksgiving in 1863, he decreed the holiday would fall on the last Thursday of November. And it did until 1939 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order to move Thanksgiving to the fourth Thursday of November. Congress passed legislation to make the change official in 1941.
Why did Roosevelt move Thanksgiving one week earlier, and why did Congress acquiesce to the change? Because a powerful coalition of retailers and other business interests asked them to.
By this time, the holiday shopping season was synonymous with the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. When Thanksgiving fell on November 30, as it did in 1939, that left only 24 holiday shopping days – and sometimes fewer, as many stores closed on Sundays back then. Naturally, this worried retailers and retail-adjacent businesses, who reasoned that busy holiday shoppers would simply shop less in a shorter season.
Their pitch to Roosevelt was more egalitarian: A longer holiday shopping season would be good for the American economy. That sounds dubious, but remember that the United States was still struggling to shake off the aftereffects of the Great Depression back in the late 1930s.
Whatever the idea’s economic merits, Roosevelt was sold, and the day that would later be known as Black Friday marked the official start of the holiday shopping season.
